April Newsletter

Thank you for supporting our Student Government Coin War!! The students did amazing, and they enjoyed their dress up days!


Principal's Report

Yay! Spring is officially here and now it's just a matter of holding out for the warmer weather!  Looks like this weekend might be the start of a warm up!  This past month students have been learning about Forgiveness, which is deciding that someone who has wronged us does not have to pay.  For the month of April students will be learning and talking about Humility, which is putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve.  Be sure to keep an eye out in the Weekly Updates & Reminders for more information on this month's big idea.
As you all hopefully know by now this will be my last year at i4L.  Here is the letter that was sent out just over a week ago when the announcement was made.  As a district leadership team, governance council and staff we are working through the change process and plan to have an update in the coming weeks. Please know that I will be here through the end of June carrying on my duties as normal.
Appropriate Clothing for Recess - please help us ensure students are prepared to go outside for recess throughout the spring months.  The weather fluctuates quite rapidly during the spring months and we don't like students to be unprepared.  Students should have a jacket with them for going outside even when it's close to 50 degrees given that the winds can make it feel very chilly!  We appreciate your help with this!!
All school field trip - On Thursday April 20 the whole school will be taking a field trip to the West Bend Silver Lining Theater to see the "James and the Giant Peach."  Please have your child wear his or her i4L shirt that day.
Be sure to read through the rest of this newsletter as there is a lot of information to be consumed :-)  Remember, April Showers, means May Flowers!!  Keep an eye out for the upcoming plant sale info coming soon!!

The Forward Exam is the state assessment being used this year and will include grades 3-5.  Classroom teachers will share out the schedule next week.  They will do some prep work in class to familiarize the students with the online assessment system.  Please help us emphasize how important it is for students to put forth their best effort on this assessment.
